Triumph Speedmaster vs Harley-Davidson 883 Iron vs Kawasaki VN900
The new £6,749 Triumph Speedmaster takes on the £6,699 Harley-Davidson 883 Iron and £7,000 Kawaski VN900 in our test of the middleweight cruisers, that offer custom motorcycle styling without the inflated pricetag and size of the bigger cruisers.
Surprisingly, they don't feel cheap and can almost offer the same experience as their bigger custom brothers but for half the price. With the Harley and Triumph you also buy in to the 'brand', whereas the Kawasaki lacks kudos but makes up for it with the mean, pseudo hard tail styling, with the hidden rear shock giving not only cleaner lines, but also better ride quality than the others.

Triumph Thunderbird vs. the best of the rest
MCN has already discovered that although the new Triumph Thunderbird is a great bike, it still can't tempt riders who have their hearts set on a Harley. But how does it compare to the other cruiser competition?

Moto Guzzi and BMW both now offer sportier roadster twins in the shape of the new 1200 Sport and R1200R but is that where the similarities end?
Check out the video below to see what MCN's Road Test Editor, Phil West, thought of the Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport and the BMW R1200R.
Triumph Speedmaster Test Ride - Failure!
This was a video of a test ride on a Triumph Speedmaster. Using the Veho Micro Muvi camera mounted on my brother's helmet. However the video results were not as spectacular as we hoped. The Exhaust sounded good though. Next time the camera stays on my helmet.
